Talk:Roller (obstacle)

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Isn't this a Millstone? Even though it doesn't have that Donut shape, we should move it because the large rolling things in Clockwork Ruins Galaxy are mentioned on that page. NSMBU Fuzzy Artwork.pngYoshiGo99Yoshi Egg Tilted Artwork.png 16:01, 2 July 2014 (EDT)

I'd agree with a merge. - Walkazo 14:37, 14 February 2016 (EST)

Merge Roller with Millstone[edit]

Settledproposal.svg This talk page proposal has already been settled. Please do not edit any of the sections in the proposal. If you wish to discuss the article, do so in a new header below the proposal.

Merge 8-1
These are clearly the same basic thing, even if they aren't intended to be a reference to the ones of DKC or SMG2, which are both listed as being the same as each other. It's just silly to have them as separate, they are large non-sentient stone wheels intended to crush, and even look basically the same. Is "Roller" even an official name? It's not cited.

  8. Wildgoosespeeder (talk) Roller is considered conjectural compared to Millstone. They function roughly the same. Super Mario Wiki tends to use conjecture sparingly and only when necessary. Is millstone the official name for this obstacle?


  1. the yoshi co. (talk) they look different


Per the Prima guide, "Roller" is an official name for the obstacles. I also don't necessary agree with the notion that two different subjects should be merged together just because they have similar mechanics. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 18:59, 28 July 2017 (EDT)

Well, that should be cited then. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:02, 28 July 2017 (EDT)
They're both stone wheels that crush found in ruinous locations, and are based upon large stone wheels for grinding grain from real life. If the Clockwork Ruins ones were differentiated, there'd be a bit more of an argument for these to be separate as well, but they're the same general thing, and unlike other general things like Butterflies, Birds, and Frogs, these have a consistent gameplay purpose, with the only difference being whether or not a beaver is using them to charge, or if they can be wall-jumped up, which is similar to differences displayed by Thwomps.

E-guide? That's not PRIMA, I don't think. Is it? (For everyone else, he claims he found the name in the E-Guide for the (blech) DX Remake.) Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 17:53, 31 July 2017 (CT)
I say "eGuide" to refer to the electronic versions of guides that Prima releases on their official website. By and large, they're exactly the same as their paper counterparts, as least as far as I've looked into it. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 18:55, 31 July 2017 (EDT)
